Any suggestions for copywriter or provide generic description of the product to be used for the Internet or non-channel specific applications. Continuing the legacy built by its previous editions, CLINICAL CALCULATIONS: A UNIFIED APPROACH is now in its sixth edition and more powerful than ever before. Dedicated to providing a clear, straightforward introduction to the increasingly popular dimensional analysis method of calculating dosages, the book is a valuable tool for readers of all levels and backgrounds. Coverage includes systems of measurement, oral and parenteral medications, basic and advanced intravenous medications, and pediatric dosage. This updated edition has retained the features that made its predecessors so effective: a workbook-style format, strong IV therapy content, and clinical applicability. The value of the sixth edition has been enhanced with the addition of all-new real-world case studies and new and improved ways for students to test their knowledge, including post-tests and practice tests. A combination of need-to-know content, rich illustrations, and practical applications, this is a must-have resource for anyone seeking a solid foundation in the dimensional analysis method.
